Further thoughts regarding Mylar D (chemically inert polyester film) dust=


Polyester film has electrostatic charges which create a subtle "pull" on
the materials with which it comes in contact.  =

If a book has a covering material which has loose particles such as leath=
with a "red rot" condition one should consider consolidating the leather

If there is a textile covering material such as fragile silk or emboidery=
one might consider lining the polyester film with a material such as
Stabiltex to diminish the electrostatic pull so that fibers are not furth=
